ELEMENTS Upgrades Workflow Storage Appliances

News Image
At the recent Media Production Show 2017, ELEMENTS announced an enhancement to the hardware configuration of its media storage appliances.

The company will implement 25/100 GbE connectivity in its media server and storage appliances, specifically designed for the broadcast and post-production industry. It is used for high-end grading, compositing and editing of workflows in 4K RAW, which is not currently possible using existing 10GbE technology. Furthermore, 25/100 GbE is easier to deploy with a 40% lower cost bandwidth than 10GbE.

Existing OM3-based/fibre based peripheral equipment, such as SFP+/LC and patch panels can still be used, including existing 10GbE and original Fibre Channel based infrastructures, with the new connectivity enabling customers to work over a single Ethernet port.

Standard features embedded in all ELEMENTS appliances embrace numerous tools required on a daily basis, such as a user and rights management, a file manager and a task manager for customized workflow automation, all of which are managed through a GUI for ease-of-operation.

ELEMENTS' Media Library, a web-based media asset management and editing tool, caters to every step of a digital post-production workflow and offers features that simplify and streamline everyday tasks and approval processes.

André Kamps, CEO, ELEMENTS, said: "We like to be one step ahead, always with the goal to enable our customers to benefit from the latest technologies. The implementation of 25 / 100GbE allows us to further extend the use of Ethernet based networks for high end collaborative workflows."
